Treating Minor Conditions at your Pharmacy

Posted by: Monifa - Posted on:

From FEBRUARY 2024 patients can pop down to their local pharmacy for help with seven minor conditions which would previously have required a GP appointment.

Pharmacists can provide advice and, if clinically necessary, will offer an NHS medicine to treat it (NHS prescription charges will apply if you normally pay for medicines).

A Pharmacist can assist with the following conditions:

  • Urinary Tract Infection
  • Shingles
  • Earache
  • Sinusitis
  • Infected Insect Bites
  • Impetigo
  • Sore Throat
